Shanti a 35-year-old weaver from Khora, Rajasthan. With 20 years weaving experience she is known as an ace weaver in the community. Just one glance at her designs and she can make her thread move like a magical paint brush. Both her need and curiosity made her learn this art from her neighbourhood. Attending satsang (a spiritual music concert) added music to her life and weaving. She also makes flour and spices to run her house, and her four children support her with their best. All her designs are so perfect that you will feel it’s not a rug, but a painting.
Haati Mere Sathi
On the bottom of this Manchaha is an elephant who arrived just 6 months ago in Shanti’s village. Shanti admired its large shape and the elegance it was moving with. All the children gathered around him, his tail, ears and every move is described well through the grey yarn. She could not sit at the back and travel ahead, but secretly she always wanted to. The carpet shows the top view of her village which stays in her imagination. The light blue colour that flows in every two steps of the rug, describes Khora as a peninsula. The green textures are the long mango trees where shanti wants to relax with her friend, the elephant.
